Vegan 'Nutella'

The Global Vegan


Unfortunately, most store-bought hazelnut and chocolate spreads are not vegan and often contain large amounts of sugar. This healthy version can be spread on toast, drizzled over crepes, added to smoothies or spread on rice cakes.

Vegan Nutella Recipe


  1. 140 g (1 cup) hazelnuts, soaked in cold water overnight
    80 ml (1⁄3 cup) coconut nectar 250 ml (1 cup) coconut milk
    1⁄4 teaspoon sea salt
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    3 tablespoons raw cacao powder 3 tablespoons cacao butter


Preheat the oven to 160°C fan-forced. Line
a baking tray with baking paper.

Drain and rinse the hazelnuts. Transfer to the
prepared tray and roast for 15 minutes or until
they are dry and the skins are peeling off. Set
aside to cool.

Place the hazelnuts in a tea towel and gently rub
to remove the skins.

Transfer the hazelnuts to a high-speed blender
along with the remaining ingredients and blend
until smooth. Transfer to an airtight container
and store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
